Very nice! Love this:
the most distinguished implementation of Xfce we’ve seen
Distinguished, no less.

Also love the confusion here:
Oddly, despite Mepis development seemingly stalling in 2014, MX Linux hasn’t meant the end of super-low-end distro AntiX, which is still seeing regular releases.
Oddly, author needed to do a bit more homework.
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB

I know it may be less laudatory, but maybe the writer meant "distinctive"?

The writer also missed the chance to work "Deepin Rising" into it somehow. (cheesy '90s movie reference)

Maybe if they stopped bringing out new versions of Linux people could just concentrate on one and it might actually become popular.
Like linux much? :confused:

I know, right? Articles that are done that way annoy me, so I tend to skip 'em.

Good idea sometimes ? These were very small pages. If you skip them, then you miss the page talking about Mx-Linux.
